Sporkful Live at Guactacular: Guacamole Composition & Consumption

Posted by

Dec 17, 2013

Dan talks to Lee Frank of Nachos NY, Laura Anderson of Slate, and Chris Salgado of Chris's Awesome Guacamole about guac composition and consumption.

They debate optimal chunkiness, the tomato question, proper tortilla chip dip technique, and much more. Plus Laura offers a suggestion for testing whether a guac is chunky enough, and Dan discusses his latest innovation for preventing chip breakage.

Plus, Dan issues a challenge to NPR's Sandwich Monday.

This show was taped on stage at Guactacular 2013 at the Bell House in Brooklyn. See more pics from the taping below. Above photo left to right: Chris Salgado, Laura Anderson, Lee Frank and Dan Pashman.
